Sounds great! Have fun flying your corsair.

You guys are always speaking about a 5043 prop. Is it a GWS orange prop ? And from where do you get it cause Horizon has none. Thanks!

It also comes in gray and black. There is several places to get it, none of which I can remember right now, so you'll have to wait for someone else to chime in. Sorry.

Mespert,

The GWS 5043 is available in orange or black. It requires a 1.5mm-4mm adapter. See my blog thread on the topic for a number of GWS prop & adapter sources:

What about those prop savers from RC Fun Lab (.com)? I just picked up 3 of them: Champ, 4Site, Dynex brushless build. Anybody think those are good?

Just got 2 bravo sx motors in the mail. Anyone know where to get some pinion gears? I asked at the lhs today and he didn't have any bad motors laying around.

Just the saver and the bands:

Baby one for Embers and Vapors and such:

Extra bands:

They have "kits" which I think are overpriced as it's just the $3 saver and 2 props for $9. Here's the Corsair kit:

I don't know if they're any good... but I got 3. Waiting on the GWS props from HK.

You can also get grey 5043's at HeadsUpRC in Ocala, FL. They are FAST shippers and reasonably-priced as well.

5043 in gray are (2) for $2.15

I go there first to look for anything I need.

By the way, Heads Up seems to sell good quality stuff, so their house Lipos might be worth a try at only $2.75 each!

Afraidtoregister,

I have that same prop adapter on my su-26m sukhoi and it works great. It just screws on like a normal prop. Make sure you screw it on straight. I screwed mine on a little crooked and now my plane vibrates. I don't really care because i might get rid of the plane but it's really annoying.

Micro Corsair servo covers

What kind or brand of glue was it, I'm trying to find the exact same thing.

There was a guy in another forum who used some cut-offs from a 2-liter bottle which looked excellent, but I couldn't find any in our house. But I had purchased a 3-pack of glue and the blister pack was shaped like each tube, so I cut two of these plastic pieces out, trimmed them and used some foam-safe CA to attach them under the wings.
But the thin strip of CA wasn't going to be strong enough in a hard hit, so I decided to clear tape them as well.

They seem to do their job and the servos have just enough room to work.

It was a 3-pack of Aleene's Tacky Glue. (Which is great stuff for filling cracks and glueing-down gear boxes and motors.)

Flying the F4U from my yard

Here's a clip I shot this evening. I'm flying around my yard. I'm running a 5043 prop & a Hyp 240 cell. As you can see, scale aerobatics are no problem with this setup, and she slows nicely.

I have the cockpit upgrade available on the Website now. I went with an open cockpit as a personal preference so the instrument panel can be seen better. There may be a thread on how its done later but for now all you need to know is the instructions are on the site under the banner and you don't have to split the fuselage to get it done.
I had a blade of grass strip out one of these servos on another model so I made covers to prevent it on this one.
They come in the upgrade kit too.
Not bad for $6

Has anyone flown with this kit yet?

I ordered it 'cause I think it looks great! And I really want the servo covers ...

In another thread people wondered about performance because of the added weight and drap from the open canopy. Has anyone found this to be an issue?

Also, is there any need to keep the canopy open? Can't you just tape/glue the middle part back after the pilot is in?
